Porto Elounda De Luxe Resort - Luxury Hotel in Elounda - Crete
The Porto Elounda is the latest five-star creation of architect Spyros Kokotos, designer of all the well-known luxury resorts in Elounda. Unique in many respects, Porto Elounda is the only 'Insignia Resort' in Greece.
The Resort lies 500m from the renowned Hotel Elounda Mare, the only Relais & Chateaux in Greece. Both Hotels are under the same management and receive the personal attention of the Kokotos family.
The Porto Elounda Deluxe Resort is built on the seafront, on a plot of 110,000 m² with a 150 meter long private sandy beach. The view from the Main Building, the Villas and Bungalows over Mirabello Bay and the distant mountains, is magnificent. The rooms and suites in the main building have all been renovated in 2003/2004, providing excellent accommodation with large balconies or terraces. The public areas are decorated with antique and contemporary furniture and rugs. Porto Elounda is also the sole Greek resort that includes an Executive nine-hole Golf Course and a Golf Academy.
The first view from the hilltop is a panorama of the Bay of Mirabello, where the foreground is dominated by the Porto Elounda De Luxe Resort and the green expanse of its golf course. Designed with respect to the architectural tradition of the land, this unique complex is an oasis of recreation and discreet luxury comprising the hotel and the seafront bungalows and villas.
Staying at Porto Elounda is a delight of traditional Cretan architecture and interior design. The typical whitewashed surfaces bind harmoniously with the brown and gray rock walls, the local carob and olive trees. The decoration is exclusively antique pieces of folk-art: carpets, chests, tapestries, mantelpieces with fine Cretan marble throughout the Halls and Salons.
Some Rooms have direct access from their balconies to the large oblong pools. Right on the seafront are Bungalows with direct access to the sandy beach or platforms on the rocks and there even is a Grande Suite with its own private beach, outdoor pool and garden, indoor pool and more.
The Resort has been awarded the European Blue Flag for the past six consecutive years in recognition of the continuous efforts of maintaining the environment in pristine condition, for efficient water management, wastewater treatment and for the participation in the raising of environmental awareness among the staff and local schoolchildren.
The Porto Elounda Resort is situated 7 km to the east of Agios Nikolaos in what is generally considered the most beautiful part of Crete and 70 km, approximately 1 hour’s drive, from Heraklion International Airport. Fly to Athens and take the connections to Heraklion, or fly direct to Heraklion by charter flight from many European cities.Distances:
